For Wardrobe Refashion, I need your suggestions as to what I can do with these two trench coats.
I've had these two coats since about 1990. I got them from Spiegel and they are still in fine shape. Having had them for so long, I would like to refashion them in some way to freshen them up and make them more interesting.
Cream Coat: As you can imagine, this coat gets worn perhaps once or twice, and then its back to the cleaners. I love the cream color, but am sick of the limited use. I don't really know much about dying, but that might be a possibility. I would probably need to have it commercially dyed, and that might be a barrier. OR . . . add a border from a patterned fabric? SUGGESTIONS?
Green Coat: I've called this my World War One trench coat since I got it. It gets more wear as it is darker. But, again, it could use some freshening. I am wondering about adding embrodiery or perhaps a trim of some sort. Or could this be dyed? SUGGESTIONS????
